Hi there
use one of the "Linux" type settings and go for the default mem size etc etc.


Vmware will then install the guest OS directly from the DVD.

BUT ---

Are you sure however that it's the actual OS and not just the Google Chrome Browser as I didn't think the OS was ready yet for PC's.

These people have had some sort of working version for a while - but I'm a bit suspicious of having to create an account first.

Hi Jimbo!

So it would be linux.
I browsed through the dvd and it is an isofile there. So it seems to be a os. Let me try... I will inform if it work or otherwise.
